This burfi can be made with fresh coconut or dessicated coconut,but i like the taste of fresh coconut,so here it iis with fresh coconut.
1 cup fresh grated coconut
3/4 cup sugar
a pinch of salt
a pinch of elaichi powder
1/4 cup water
Melt the sugar with the water till sugar dissolves, (dont allow the sugar to crystallise)add the coconut and elaichi powder,and salt.Keep stirring on a slow flame till you see the coconut and sugar well blended. Add coloring(you can separate the mix and use two colors).Flatten the mix on a buttered dish.Press on the powdered cashew on the top and cut into desired shapes.Can be stored for a week.
Note:you could use 1/4 cup milk powder if you like the milky coconut taste.
